Kirk's new partnership in plastic

Kirk Group, the global specialist in liquid & biogas storage, have signed a strategic partnership agreement with one of the UK's leading membrane fabrication company Power Plastics.

This new investment will result in the production of the industry-leading Biodome Double Membrane Gas Holders in the UK, providing greater controls on quality and testing prior to site installation. "This partnership has many benefits for the industry", says Andy Beetles, managing director at Power plastics. "The quality of our manufacturing along with Kirk's design, engineering and project management skills, will improve the supply of the finished product to the global client base, which is demanding an ever improving service." This new partnership has been further enhanced by a long term agreement with Verseidag GMBH, an international company that brings together unique expertise in high-performance materials combined with cutting edge production technology. They will manufacture the biogas fabrics to a very highly designed and detailed specification which is not available to any other biogas membrane provider, resulting in a new level of technical performance and safety benefits never before available in the industry. "We consider this whole investment and partnership agreement to represent the most significant advancement in our industry for many years", comments Andrew Peace, managing director at Kirk Group. "The combination of skills, experience and innovation will raise the bar on the level of quality, service and performance in the global biogas storage industry. The distribution and framework agreements, together with the working partnerships we currently have with our clients will benefit greatly from a unique synergy that will significantly enhance the technical performance, safety and design life of any project." "We find ourselves at the forefront of an emerging global renewable market, where Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas utilisation have a significant role to play and we are proud to have bought specialist product production back to the UK, demonstrating that British manufacturing, engineering and expertise can compete on a truly global scale whilst setting new technical and performance standards in this ever growing, evolving and exciting industry".
